Three people killed and at least one injured after a coastal bluff collapsed on Friday along a beach in San Diego, according to officials. A woman was declared dead at the scene of the collapse. Two people were in critical condition in the hospital but died, officials said.
According to NBC San Diego, the collapse near Grandview Beach had warning signs posted about the unstable bluffs. The collapse was blamed on natural erosion.
“Given the apparent natural instability, beachgoers should avoid areas near or under the bluffs and keep a recommended safe distance of 25 to 40 feet away,” city officials said in a statement.
